We found the best $89 dupes for the trending $575 ballet flats.

If keeping up with the latest fashion trends isn't really your thing, then you've probably missed the hype surrounding the Ganni ballerina flats. 

For most of 2024, we've seen ballet flats make a resurgence, thanks to Gen Z considering the style of shoe 'cool' again.

While your gross and sweaty ballet flats from the 2010s most likely bring back nightmares, these are nothing but a dream, and you'd hope so considering they cost $545. 

They're comfortable, despite looking like a painful contraption, edgy and effortlessly stylish.

But you won't be blamed or shamed for not wanting to drop close to $600 on a pair of shoes, no matter how iconic they are. Because while they're a staple in many people's wardrobes, some have bigger priorities.

You don't have to be in your early 20s either to rock them. So long as you style them with items you're comfortable with, you'll be good to go whether you're 25 or 65.

But if you want to splurge — do what sparks joy for you!
